Nambucca Squash Club serves up a new competition on 26 May

Wednesday night competition players of all ages.


SQUASH players of all ages entered the final round of the Wednesday night competition last week at Nambucca Squash Club.

The Squash Committee, headed by Bruce Graham, Club President, and Diane Budd, Treasurer, have been heavily involved in organising the competition for close to thirty years at the picturesque location, next to the Nambucca Heads Island Golf Club.

Col Hocking is leading line one on 43 points and former women’s state player Katherine Noonan is leading line two with 39 points.

Garry O’Connor leads line three with 38 points and young gun Jayden Sparks is leading line four with 37 points in the popular mixed competition.

The Committee is already getting ready for the next competition as Bruce told News Of The Area.

“The next competition starts on 26 May and we are holding a grading night on 19 May from 6pm for new players or old players who want to be re-graded.

“We changed the format to a timed event because of Covid–19 and players seem to like it, everyone plays three games of eight minutes, it can be great for all round fitness and we play all year round.

“Grading is important so everyone plays in a group with players of a similar ability, that’s what makes for a good comp.

“Line one has the most experienced players and we have lots of emerging young talent in lines three and four.

“Squash is a game for everyone, it is not uncommon for a ten year old to play a sixty year old, it’s an inclusive game and there’s lots of parents who play on the same night as their kids,” said Bruce.
